Happy Friday! It was a good week, wasn’t it? Or, at least it was around these parts. Thank you again for your kind words on the first birthday of DearWendy.com and thank you for embracing the new message board as much as you have (and at the time of writing this — early Friday morning — we’re up to over 1000 forum comments, so I’d say you’ve embraced it pretty well). The board was in the pipeline for a while and it feels great to see it off to a strong start. And since we now have an active place for you to take “off-topic” conversations, I’m going to phase out the Weekend Open Threads. In their place, I’m going to start doing Friday Links, a collection of relationship-themed links from around the web. For this, I’ll need your help. My web-surfing time is very limited these days and I don’t get around as much as I did before baby. So if you’d be so kind as to pass along links to interesting articles, photos, videos, and websites that you come across, I’d appreciate it!
By the way, after I launched the message board on Monday, I added a new topic called “DW Meetups.” If you haven’t checked it out yet and are interested in possibly meeting other DWers in your area, go here and see if your city is listed (and if it’s not, list it yourself!).
P.S. This is one of my favorite Jackson outfits to date, and since he’s about to outgrow it, I had to post it here for posterity. Thanks for indulging my mama pride.
